Thde news agency has a short quote from AAN's Martine van Bijlert on the significance of the 2014 elections: 

Martine van Bijlert, co-director of an independent research group called Afghanistan Analysts Network, noted the elections come as the country braces for the withdrawal of international combat troops.

"They come at a time when Afghanistan is in a transition," she said. "There is this sense of uncertainty what is the future going to bring."
